BBQ - Instant Readout Thermometers

allanc Sep 7, 2009 04:33 PM

How long is it supposed to take for an instant readout BBQ thermometer to provide an accurate display?
The temperature on my 'Marathon Safe T Fork' is still climbing after 30 or more seconds.
Should I purchase a different model?
If so, recommendations for a model that is available in Canada are appreciated.

    I own and use two of these...They very are fast, accurate, and adjustable if ever needed!!!

      Mine provides a readout also after 4 seconds, but the temp keeps climbing :(.
      Thank you for the recommendation.

      I agree with Bob, thermoworks are excellent, I have 3-4 of the old version and just got a couple of the splash proof ones.
